Hold on to your soap and don't bend over - the Dirty Three are coming! Jim, Mick, and Warren are sailing out from down under and on their way to the USA! Who knows if they'll make it through immigration, or if they'll need to be smuggled, or if their smugglers will turn out to be pirates or which of their instruments will be confiscated as "contraband" by border police! Perhaps their mega-man-beards will hide them, but then what about Mick? He's clean shaven as the day he was born! Though not as clean, of course. It's an absolute nail-biter we can't wait to watch unfold, so we might as well announce: it's the first Dirty Three tour of the USA since... a real, real fucking long time ago, ok? Tell your friends, tell every-USA-body - the Dirty Three are coming, the Dirty Three are coming!
